A Springboard for Invasion

Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee arrived on this hill late on the morning of August 29, 1862, to lead his reunited army in the Second Battle of Manassas. By the campaign's conclusion, he emerged victorious and seized the opportunity to lead his men on their first invasion into the North. An exhibit kiosk on the crest of Stuart's Hill highlights Confederate activity here. To begin your tour of the Second Manassas Battlefield, drive one-half mile north to the Brawner Farm, the scene of the opening action on the battle on Agust 28, 1862.

Manassas National Battlefield Park preserves nearly 5,000 acres of historic land. History and nature converge here to create an absorbing visitor experience. In addition to historic structures, archeological sites, and cultural landscapes, the park provides habitat for a wide variety of plants, birds, and other wildlife. Please enjoy your visit and help us protect the park for future generations.
